    Invitation process and cut-offs

    The highest-ranked clients by points score are invited to apply for the relevant visa. For clients who have equal points scores, the time at which they reached their points score for that subclass (referred to as the visa date of effect) determines their order of invitation. EOIs with earlier dates of effect are invited before later dates.

    Visa Subclass Points Score Visa date of effect
    Skilled – Independent (subclass 189) 60 27/11/2012 00.59 am
    Skilled – Regional (Provisional) (subclass 489) 60 10/11/2012 14.48 pm
